Terrapin Hopzilla Double IPA Clone HomeBrew Recipe
All Grain Double IPA HomeBrew Recipe
Profile: HomeBrew recipe for a Double IPA similar to Terrapin Hopzilla. A massive Double IPA at more than 10% ABV and over 100 IBUs. Aromas of tropical fruit and citrus. Full-bodied with resiny hop flavors and very light nutty malt notes from Maris Otter base malt. Dry finish with very high hop bitterness. Requires a good sized mash vessel due to the high amount of grain.
